Helping you best support your child on and off the playing field as they practice, compete and develop.

Being a parent is hard. Being a parent of a child who has chosen to compete in a sport can be a challenge. There are all sorts of hurdles you never thought you would have to deal with and have difficulty preparing for. Being an effective communicator with a pre-teen or teenager can feel impossible in the best of situations, but especially after they are walking off of a court or field after a loss. Navigating these situations effectively and efficiently is crucial in helping your child bounce back after setbacks and helping them learn from their successes. These abilities are keys to developing them as athletes and as human beings.

Ways I have assisted parents to accomplish this:

  • Gain awareness of how you as a parent can impact your child’s performance based on what you say, don’t say and your posture on the sidelines
  • How to develop a practice and tournament schedule that supports your child’s development rather than solely trying to achieve a certain ranking or rating
  • Learning techniques to help your children before competition to deal with pre-game nervousness
  • Better understand how the feedback you provide can help or hurt your child’s academic and athletic development
  • Understand the college recruiting process and what college coaches are looking for in their new recruits
  • Learning how to effectively communicate during and/or after competition with your child so they understand they either won or they learned instead of they won or lost
  • Understand how to most effectively communicate with and have difficult conversations with your children about sport and non-sport related topics
  • Help in developing understanding of how your child is interpreting the things you say vs. how you intend for them to be heard
  • Development of skills to more effectively manage emotions when your child is testing them

I use research-based skills and concepts to help people develop better communication skills, self-awareness and self-regulation tools they can immediately put into action and teach others. The people I work with learn how to become the best version of themselves in their day-to-day lives that includes the stressful and pressure-filled moments that inevitably happen. My work is about more than helping others win more – it is about developing them as a human being.
